Thanks to Flyby Promotions I'm one of the newest Hearties, which means I totally binge watched the first season of When Calls the Heart that's on the Hallmark Channel. I fell in love with this series and think you will too (if you already aren't swooning over it). I'm a little bit obsessed with everything including the impressive wardrobe from that time period.
A couple of days ago I was fortune to be in on a live conference call with Erin Krakow, the actress that plays Elizabeth Thatcher, we were able to ask her questions and hear her thoughts on the new season.
A special thank you goes out to Heidi over at Heidi's Head for asking this question.
Your wardrobe on the show is fabulous, but I’m curious if the dresses are constricting and hard to work in? Do you have a favorite dress that you have worn on the show?
As a young teenager I read Janette Oke's book series Love Comes Softly series and loved it. So I was excited to find out that When Calls the Heart is loosely based on a series of books by the same name.
About the series:
The series is inspired by Janette Oke’s bestselling book series about the Canadian West. “When Calls the Heart” tells the captivating story of Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow), a young teacher accustomed to her high society life, who receives her first classroom assignment in Coal Valley, a small coalmining town where life is simple, but often fraught with challenges. Lori Loughlin plays Abigail Stanton, a wife and mother whose husband, the foreman of the mine, along with a dozen other miners, has just been killed in an explosion. The newly widowed women find their faith is tested when they must go to work in the mines to keep a roof over their heads. Elizabeth charms most everyone in Coal Valley, except Constable Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing) who believes Thatcher’s wealthy father has doomed the lawman’s career by insisting he be assigned in town to protect the shipping magnate’s daughter. Living in a turn of the century coal town, Elizabeth will have to learn the ways of the frontier if she wishes to thrive in the rural west on her own.
